Oh, I didn't see that. But this doesn't explain why it doesn't find a
volume for a local file... which is obviously on a mounted device. So
I guess I've got a problem with HAL which returns an invalid path, or
no path at all...

Well, all of the volumes returned by thunar_vfs where of the form
"/media/sdaX". For the unmounted one, I understand that it generates
its own path. But for my root partition, for example, I really don't
understand: I would expect a path like "file:///". Is it possible that
my HAL returns an invalid path ?
Perhaps should I have a different approach ?
